Robertson been playing really good , i know him and ellerbe was brought in to play the same position. The question is do we do another linebacker shuffle, to get our best three on the field.

Robertson and Ellerbe in our nickel.

In our base, Ellerbe at will, Robertson at mike, and Stupar/Anthony at strong.

Robertson has already taken over the MLB spot. Ellerbe can play WLB 3 games a year.

Robertson has been playing MLB, so Ellerbe's return has little to no effect on him.

Our nickel defense is going to be amazing with Robertson and Ellerbe out there. That's two every down LBs right there.

Then, when Breaux comes back, we can continue to play big nickel with Vacarro at nickel and the surprisingly stout Moore at the other corner.

Man if we can steal 1 or both of these next couple of games, we will be set to make a nice run here in the second half of the season.

This is what I'm hoping for. We joke about Ellerbe a lot but man when that guy is on the field he's so legit. Robertson and Ellerbe in the Nickel is going to be something to see. Both guys can cover and both guys can run sideline to sideline. Throw in a healthy Breaux and Rankins and our Nickel could be dangerous.

Robertson is getting trumped up a bit too much in pass-coverage. He's pretty aware in zone (minor gaffes here and there) but his man coverage on RB's have left a lot to be desired. Ellerbe is easily the best all around coverage player but Robertson has much more range at MLB than Laurinitis at this point.
